Red face "Bump Steer" What is it?

Hey guys&gals. Sorry for the ignorant post, but I've searched for an answer and haven't found one. I've heard read in other posts on how to cure this, and that it's bad and annoying, but what is it? I guess I've never had it happen to me, or just didn't know when it did. Thanks

In a nut shell ....... its basically when you hit a bump and you suspension compresses your car / truck wants to turn right. Hit a bump hard enough and it REALLY wants to turn. This usually happens when a car with stock steering components has been lowered excessively and the tie rod ends havnt been dropped. Baer Racing makes some bump steer correction extentions that drop the tie rod end mount down from the spindle.
